i just bought the above mentioned gpu and it likes to freeze.... when i tried to play company of heroes i cracked all the settings on max and ran that test video, both my monitors in a dual view went blank as if there was no signal.. so i restarted and lowered the settings and it worked, so i slowly turned them up and it did the same thing, froze and no signal, prior to that i watched a dvd movie and it did the same thing.... ive had it for 2 days but never really got a chance to test it till now. any ideas ?

not even my old 7300gt froze like that under any circumstance, even when i cranked a game beyond its detail capacity for the card it still ran... slow and choppy mind you but never froze

good power supply, good ventilation, clean drivers... the only thing i can think of beyond that would be a defective card. doesn't happen very often, but it does happen. i've never messed with a TV Wonder card, but i'm sure you got the right drivers for it. i'm stumped. sorry, mang.

it wasnt, it was running cool at 55 degrees ish, i read on tons of forums that the sapphire model in particular suffered from that problem, some were unlucky to experience it like i did... hopefully this one wont as well even though its asus, we will see... im pretty psyched cus i had a 7300gt before this and i used to think that looked pretty damn good, comming from a 64 meg radeon (dont even remember what it was) lol
